Fudge Kitchen Gourmet Peanut Butter Dipped Fudge Sticks Review


When I saw Fudge Kitchen's range of fudge "Dipped Sticks" in a local department store recently I just couldn't resist buying a pack... especially when I saw they did a peanut butter variety!

The box contains "Handmade Peanut Butter fudge sticks dipped in milk chocolate", which come individually wrapped. They're great for sharing...or eating all to yourself as I did! (for reviewing purposes, of course!)


There are 5 fingers in the box and each one is wrapped in yellow wax paper, which reminded me of Cadbury's Flake. They had a very luxury feel and I felt like I was unwrapping something really special.


Twisting the wrapper open I was met with a golden brown finger of fudge with one end coated in milk chocolate. It looked very tempting!


Biting into it, I was met with a crumbly "tablet" style fudge. It had a strong buttery golden syrup and brown sugar flavour that was intensely rich and sweet. There was a hint of saltiness and nuttiness from the peanut butter, although it got a bit lost in all the buttery sweetness. The chocolate dipped portion added a welcome chocolatey flavour that broke up the sweetness a bit.

This is a delicious fudge, but it's definitely one for the sweet-toothed! My only gripe was that some of the chocolate coated sections broke off when I unwrapped them, which was a bit disappointing.

Overall though I think this fudge is a lovely indulgent treat that would make a fantastic gift. I probably wouldn't buy a box to eat all to myself again but I wouldn't mind getting some for Christmas that's for sure! If I were to suggest an improvement I think they would be nicer with more peanut butter, as it gets a bit lost in the sweetness of the fudge.

Other varieties in this range include white chocolate dipped fudge, chilli fudge dipped in orange milk chocolate, and salted caramel fudge dipped in dark chocolate. Fudge Kitchen also do their own range of Christmas fudges which I'm really curious to try!

Price: £4.95 for a box of 5 sticks.
Suitable for vegetarians?: Doesn't state on packaging.
Allergy Information: Contains milk, soya and nuts. Gluten free.

RATING: 8 out of 10.

  4. Usually I'd avoid Fudge Kitchen products as I tend to find them overly sugary and overly creamy - so I was quite surprised to see these having been made with a tablet type fudge. I'm going to guess that their usual creamy style wouldn't satisfy the need to hold a firm 'finger' shape. These actually look quite interesting so I'd probably give them a go, despite my usual reservations on the brand. Thanks for the review!

    1. These ones are definitely very sugary and rich, so maybe one to avoid if you don't like that kind of thing. I would have preferred them to be softer and chewier like regular fudge tbh but like you say, it probably wouldn't hold its shape.

  5. Leuke tekst hier! Ik ben op zoek naar een aanrechtblad van keramiek, graniet of composiet en vroeg me af of jullie betere prijzen weten te vinden online dan natuursteen-werkblad.be/keukentablet/. Ik ga namelijk een nieuw aanrechtblad kopen
